post #56941 of 125123

So there's a good Hilfiger? Is that like Dior? I've never seen that tag before. +1 to opening it.

I actually have a Hilfiger shirt and tie with a similar tag that I paid full retail for about 10-15 years ago. I love them both. Shirt has plastic buttons, and I have no idea where either was manufactured, but both were well styled and decently made. Bought at a Hilfiger store. Haven't seen that label in a while, and have never seen that kind of quality on Hilfiger since.

I call today's thrift fit: "Something for Everyone to Hate" (No relation to Cap'n Wes's store) I know this look isn't for everyone, but it was a farkload of fun. (Click to show)



Deets:
SC: Faconnable by Cantarelli
Shirt: CT sea island (light blue)
Tie: Aquascutum.
Square: Unknown origin (brown field with red in design)
Sweater: Brioni
Trou: Hiltl
Belt: Trafalgar (THANKS SPOO!)
Shoes: C&J shell monk for Ralph Lauren
Socks: PRL
100% thrifted/discount stored/bought here/traded here



I don't always wear paisley ties, but when I do, I pair them with Brioni and Italian-made FU glenplaid.

Went to one of my usual spots today, spotted about 15 Prada shirts. Grabbed the 10 nicest ones, the rest had collar damage. Shirts at this place are usually $6, I get them to the register and the woman says, "ohhhh, these are designer, they are going to be $35 a piece, do you still want them?" Bitch, I wouldn't pay $35 for a used shirt if Miuccia Prade hand wove them herself. Translation "no thank you". However, I did score this sweet Barney's made in Scotland quilted jacket, needs a little work but overall, pretty cool, my size so N/A. This is probably a super long shot, but does anybody know who made this stuff for them? The tags look pretty old. Also, a stack of art history books focusing on the great museums of the world.

I think that's my favorite one so far.

Because you sent me the PS as a free gift with that kick-ass Etro SC?

Hilfiger had a brief answer to RLPL which offered some nice items. I just sold some Church's made chukkas for Hilfiger to a member here

I think the PS is one pattern too many. With a solid white or dark blue it would have been better IMO.

Hmm. Indeed. I think you're right. Thanks.

That's by Macintosh. I have a very similar in one black from them with the same label. I'll snap a pic when I get home.

No idea about flipping, but I picked up more than a few Hilfiger made in Italy items for personal use that are both well made and tasteful.

Passed an Luciano Barbera SC for 40 bucks. Was very nice but small for me at 50EU. At GMMCl territory:). They have pretty nice numbered prints for your new house, dude. 60 bucks to 500. Incase of need, not so expensive but not thrift. You know who prices stuff like this.
Passed lots of other stuff, too, EZ etc. Also passed an Alden loafer, was resoled and Alden does not touch if they were fixed by someone else. 20 bucks. 3 stores, nothing that fits.
I will change my archaic blackberry, then will start tagging these. Sort of catch and release fishing.

Any chance if you wing back by where the Barbera is you can take any pics or maybe proxy it? :)  What type of fabric pattern?

Picked this up last week at value village, an orphan navy suit jacket from Tombolini, very light weight fabric, canvassed with side vents, EU 52 but fits like a big US 40. Scour the whole store and still couldn't find the pants, I guess I'll have to be patient on Ebay, if not I'm thinking of changing the buttons to MOP or horn and use it as a navy SC. There was gray suit, same size from tombolini, with visible damage on the lapel and pants, and they dare to ask $20 for it, WTF!
